Our Retro Rooster cross stitch was inspired by a 1920s woodblock print by graphic artist Julie de Graag. The sleek rooster in black and white makes a great first-time project, and is easy enough for kids.
Retro rooster cross stitch measures 36.3 cm x 31.2 cm (7,142 stitches) and completed in a single colour (black). What’s great about this project is you’ll be stitching the outline of the rooster, so it won’t take too long.
The finished piece looks great on canvas tote bags and cushions, as well as inside rustic picture frames.
Julie de Graag was a painter and graphic artist who lived between 1877 and 1924. Her minimalist designs and strong colours were typical of European Art Nouveau, giving new possibilities to everyday subjects (like domestic pets, farm animals, houseplants).
